1:19   If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
1:20   but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured with the sword; for the mouth of Yahweh has spoken it."
1:21   How the faithful city has become a prostitute! She was full of justice; righteousness lodged in her, but now murderers.
1:22   Your silver has become dross, your wine mixed with water.
1:23   Your princes are rebellious, and companions of thieves. Everyone loves bribes, and follows after rewards. They don't judge the fatherless, neither does the cause of the widow come to them.
1:24   Therefore the Lord, Yahweh of Armies, the Mighty One of Israel, says: "Ah, I will get relief from my adversaries, and avenge myself of my enemies;
1:25   and I will turn my hand on you, thoroughly purge away your dross, and will take away all your tin.
1:26   I will restore your judges as at the first, and your counselors as at the beginning. Afterward you shall be called 'The city of righteousness, a faithful town.'
1:27   Zion shall be redeemed with justice, and her converts with righteousness.
1:28   But the destruction of transgressors and sinners shall be together, and those who forsake Yahweh shall be consumed.
1:29   For they shall be ashamed of the oaks which you have desired, and you shall be confounded for the gardens that you have chosen.
1:30   For you shall be as an oak whose leaf fades, and as a garden that has no water.
1:31   The strong will be like tinder, and his work like a spark. They will both burn together, and no one will quench them."
